I came across Katy’s Twitter account and therefore, blog, a few months back when another blogger promoted her. If you know me, you know I’m not a huge follower of fashion bloggers. Although I admire them greatly, I’m not into fashion and wear the same thing pretty much every day. Despite Katy being a fashion blogger, she is also a lifestyle blogger and I love her think pieces. Overall, regardless of what style of blogging you’re into, I think you’ll find something you like on Katy Belle’s blog! Here are some questions I asked her – Continue reading “Behind the Blogger Part II – Katy Belle”→
Not a lot of people know this but Becky and I actually met many years ago on the photography site, Flickr. She was hosting a print giveaway, I entered and was one of the winners. I had to contact her with my postal address and the rest is history, and a lot of Facebook messages. Despite Becky being an actual photographer, I have dabbled in it for a few years and in those years, I have photographed a lot of strangers. I’m not a natural in front of the camera and my social anxiety doesn’t mix with asking people to pose in photographs with me so sometimes I just find strangers who are in the perfect place at the right time and take a snap. I’ve started this series over on my Instagram and have just called it The Stranger Series. Here is the first part in the blog version and I hope you like them! Continue reading “Stranger Series”→
Today, 8th of March 2018, is International Women’s Day and as two (raging) feminists, we couldn’t let this day pass without dedicating a blog post to it. We played around with a few different ideas but finally decided on a list of recommendations for all things girl power. We hope you find something you like but more importantly, celebrate the day of the woman in whatever way you can! Continue reading “International Women’s Day 2018 //”→
“Perhaps I loved the monstrous because I was a monster. Josef, the Goblin King, and me. We were grotesques in the world above, too different, too odd, too talented, too much. We were all too much.”
– S. Jae Jones, Shadowsong

So we’ve almost come to the end of February and after January decided to go on longer than a DFS sale, flying through this month has shook me. But for now, here are some more bloggers that I’ve been loving recently. Nothing inspires me more in the blogging community more than other bloggers and as I’ve said already, this is the year that we should all support each other!

In 2007, Stacey Dooley was a twenty-something working in fashion retail. She was selected to take part in the BBC series Blood, Sweat and T-Shirts which saw her live and work alongside Indian factory workers making clothes for the UK High Street. This sparked her series of hugely popular investigations, establishing her as one of BBC3’s most celebrated presenters.
Through the course of her documentary making, Stacey has covered a variety of topics, from sex trafficking in Cambodia, to Yazidi women fighting back in Syria. At the core of her reporting are incredible women in extraordinary and scarily ordinary circumstances – from sex workers in Russia, to victims of domestic violence in Honduras. In her first book, On the Front Line with the Women Who Fight Back, Stacey draws on her encounters with these brave and wonderful women, using their experiences as a vehicle to explore issues at the centre of female experience. From gender equality and domestic violence, to sex trafficking and sexual identity, Stacey weaves these global strands together in an exploration of what it is to be women in the world today.
